belong to. now, via politico, the obama administration, the campaign has come out before against that campaign on the trail that said the video that was played was actually produced by the city of charlotte, and it has nothing to do with the obama for america campaign or the democratic national committee. that came from the steph charlotte, regardless of what you feel. the speech continues, as does our coverage. we have a lot more ahead. "newsroom international" is getting ready to get underway with its coverage of what's going on around the world. suzanne malveaux, usually that is her program, but today we have the fantastic
with a bailout check. and the obama administration ultimately had a managed bankruptcy of the automakers so the romney op-ed titled "let detroit go bankrupt," that was a "new york times" headline. romney wanted a managed bankruptcy, but -- but, john, you say he has actually said these words. >> the obama campaign sent me a video over night of him saying it in 2011, well after the bailout happened. he actually spoke the words let detroit go bankrupt, actually quoting the headline from that. so they are trying to say the words came out of his mouth, albeit not before the bailout or not when he's advocating for it. >> the difference here is mitt romney did not want a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the companies as they were, right? >> that's exactly correct. >> in the end you didn't get a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the company, right, because the white house and the car czar was remaking these things through the bankruptcy. >> there was a bailout and managed bankrupts net end. >> so the final verdict. >> the final verdict on this one is that it is false, that it is false
in our nato partners and talk about the positive ways the obama administration handled libya and that biden should point out that paul ryan's most recent budget in the house called for reductions in spending to the state department and he said that could jeopardize u.s. security and that biden should point that out. >> we know that half of the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, national security. the other half on domestic issues. right now they're introducing the wives of the candidates. soledad, tell our viewers what you're seeing. >> that's right. the commissioner has been really running through the program as they head up through the start of the debate. interesting difference between the two wives. very different women, of course. >> very different, primarily because we do see jill biden a lot out there with michelle obama, talking about military families. jan ryan has not done any interviews. believe me, we tried. and she wants to maintain a low profile. she's raising her three kids. she simply has the pedigree to be able to get out there and talk about politic

an eye on because it's a big strength for the vice president, but at the same time the obama administration is facing a ton of criticism over libya from the romney-ryan ticket, and so he is also vulnerable and we'll be seeing how that pans out tonight. >> all right. briana keiller, thank you. appreciate it. >> watch the vice presidential debate. it is happening tonight right here on cnn, cnn.com. our coverage starting at 7:00 eastern. here's what we're working on for this hour. >> the perception battle. it had will happen the moment bide sxen ryan take the stage, and the age gap between the two will be front and center. >>> while their husbands take the stage, the wives will be sitting on the edge of their seats. we'll look at the lives of jenna ryan and jill biden. plus, she's moderating tonight's debate, but martha radditz is facing criticism for knowing president obama too well. he attended her wedding back in the 1990s. that's the power of human resources. the society... for human resource management and its members know... how to harness that power, because we help devel
and no rookie when it comes to face-offs with the obama administration. just a few moments ago he tweeted out a picture of himself on the debate stage here in danville, kentucky. i guess he was going through his walk through, you might say, at that point, wolf. and we are told by top aides to paul ryan that he expects to be called mr. ryan later on this evening. in one corner paul ryan in an ice cream shop on the campaign trail, mitt romney's running mate didn't exactly predict a rocky road in his first debate with joe biden. but he did give the vice president the edge. >> joe biden's been on this stage before. he's been on the big stanls. this is my first time. >> reporter: in the other corner a man who's been on this stage before. >> ever seen me rope-a-dope? >> reporter: but biden better have his gloves up. ryan will be looking to debate substance, the wyoming congressman will zero in on this widely received presidential gaffe earlier this month. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried for the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign is looking
, unemployment is responsible for that. lower taxes are responsible for that. and the obama administration has lowered taxes consistently. it's brought in less revenue. >> let's look at the question about the dow jones average. it's fascinating. this president has been seen as being hostile to wall street. wall street believes that wall street has been treated badly. you look at these numbers, and you have to ask that bill clinton question, are you going to believe me or your liein' eyes? >> the fact is that the dow did take a small dump right before obama became president. >> that's one way to put it. >> so he is a beneficiary of this massive rise. >> i now can see it. >> we've got to introduce to you bill karins, but go ahead. >> the dow was way, way down when obama took office. and it has basically doubled during his tenure. the fact is a lot of americans were not invested in it. a lot of americans pulled their money out of their mutual funds. they're either sitting on the sidelines or sitting in bonds. >> mark halhalperin, i'm sure wl hear a lot of this tonight. the question, are you bette
policy speech, republican presidential candidate mitt romney had this to say about the obama administrati administration's work in the middle east. take a listen. >> but it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. unfortunately, that's exactly where we find ourselves in the middle east under president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civilizations in rel
care issue is not going to go away in this debate. we're going to hear more of it. barack obama was defending his idea of obamacare and medicare and said for instance, that medicare works because the insurance companies have to make a profit on top of their administrative cost, medicare doesn't have to do that and it's lowered administrative costs and therefore a better deal. he said that romney's idea of premium support helping people buy insurance in the private marketplace, all economists agree the premium support will cause medicare to collapse. >> now that's an arguable point and i think that romney is going to engage him on those issues and try to continue to make the case for private sector health insurance. >> what i found interesting about this exchange is remember, obamacare was supposed to be romney's achilles heel throughout the primaries, his rivals said he wouldn't be able to challenge on that, and i think he proved a lot of people wrong. >> he pushed right through that and went on offense. >> and it's an example of his effort to reach across the aisle. >> bipartis
